Other Stories contains the b-sides “Julian the Onion” and “Four Fires,” two tracks that previously only available on the limited-edition deluxe version of Ten Stories. Each song is rooted in the story of the same 19th-century traveling circus train crash from Ten Stories and expands on the character of the Rabbit from East Enders Wives and introduces a new character previously cut from the album, Julian.
For those who desire physical media we have re-upped the 7-inches from the Deluxe Box Set of Ten Stories and are offering them in Clear and something we are calling “Onion Orange.” Not only are we offering new and rare colors but the 7-inches also come with two paintings by Russian-born artist Vasily Kafanov, and a lyric sheet and foreword by drummer Rick Mazzotta, packaged in an old-style gatefold jacket . We are only selling 335 copies of this 7-inch and we do not expect them to stick around long.
If you only want digital media we are offering Other Stories as a digital download through Amazon, iTunes and generally wherever Digital Music is sold. But the place you will want to come to is our website, because we will be offering something those guys can’t. Our Digital Download of Other Stories we be a Pay-What-You-Want offer. So you can spend $1 or you can spend $100 on these two songs.
Also on August 6th our merch store will be replenished with some of our shirts that have been on backorder and we’ll be adding new products like new shirts and posters. We’ll also be adding 3 new colors of Brother, Sister on vinyl, and 2 new colors of the February, 1878 – Single. We’ll also be out on tour in the month of August with Spinto Band and A Great Big Pile of Leaves. So if you live on the East Coast or New England and Canada check out the dates below and grab tickets.
